Yes, Clementine's are sprayed with Gibberellic Acid for more production.

The pulp of a ripe Chandler pummelo is pink in color

I have seen this information before.  Today I would think it would be easer to just import the fruit into Russia. Thanks Vlad for your posting.

Amazing tree.  At 30 years of age the tree is at it peak.

Navel oranges can withstand 28F for shot periods,  and lower when grafted onto Poncirus root stock.  Hamlin is the top choice for orange juice.  It is also more cold hardy than the Navel orange. Hamlin is the hardiest of the sweet orange group, although it will be damaged at temps down to 20 degrees F.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Leaf Cupping & Magnesium Question
« on: November 29, 2021, 06:53:48 PM »
Looking at the leaves I'm not sure that it is even a magnesium deficiency.  However, depending on the severity of a magnesium deficient leave the leaves affected do not regain full recoloration.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Kumquat as rootstock?

Why not make PT the only graft, instead using Kumquat as first graft and then PT as the interstock?

Yes, works well for additional side branching.

Probably could make 28, but to be sure you could put it in a warmer location.

 have had a few small  immature Chandler Pummelo fall off so far this season.  They have been laying on the ground for several weeks.  I will cut one open to see if they still mature when off he tree.

Vinegar is an organic acid (acetic acid) generally with an acid content of between only 5 to 8 percent.  Being an organic acid it has a very short life span.  The growers in my area use phosphoric acid. Many growers also use sulfur.

I picked a Valentine Pummelo this morning.  The peel looked much like Brian's (mostly yellow with some light green).  Upon cutting open the red coloration was not fully distributed, and the pulp was still some what grainy.  I will wait another two or three weeks to try another fruit.

It depends a lot on the temperature and the amount of light the plants receive.  Many of my container trees are growing in a 5-1-1 medium and I fertilize every third or fourth watering. They are growing inside a greenhouse.

has the tree been fertilized?  The leaf pattern  is show a nitrogen deficiency. A 4-year old citrus tree should be fertilized 3 times a year

The tree is in need of fertilization.  Brian gave you good information.

You can prune as little or as much as you want.  But as Brian wrote, citrus produce fruit on the new growth, and pruning removes the new growth.  Therefore, the trees fruit production will greatly suffer from pruning.

Definitely under fertilized.  Fertilize with a fertilizer high in nitrogen and potassium.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Arctic Frost Report
« on: November 05, 2021, 02:24:29 PM »
Artic Frost is grown on its own root stock so that if the tree is killed by a cold spell, it can regenerate from it roots.  If a killer cold spell is expected, the grower banks the roots with dirt to protect it.

I don't think it is HLB

I thing Galatians522 is correct.

All of my container trees are in Root Maker air pruning containers.  I agree with Brian that the pots do create a fabulous root system.
